Description

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Technical Field

The present application relates to tools for generating craft items, such as cards, and kits for generating craft items.

2. Related Art

It is increasingly popular to make craft or handmade items such as cards, announcements and the like. Not only are the custom cards fun to make for crafters, the cards are appreciated more by the recipient. To help those that want to make a single birthday card or hundreds of wedding invitations, a wide variety of card blanks, toppers and embellishments are available. Stamps and stamp kits provide a great way for the average crafter to add professional quality graphics to their items. However, it can be difficult to properly align the stamp and/or get a clean impression on the item. If a clean impression is not made on the first attempt, the stamp must be realigned in exactly the same position or the item will be unusable.

To address these problems, a variety of tools have been developed to help apply stamps to items. However, these tools present their own problems. For example, printing press apparatuses may allow for repeated stamping in the same position, but they are costly and bulky. Often, these devices also make it difficult to see how the stamp will look on the item before making an impression. Smaller, portable items, such as that described in U.S. Pat. No. 6,453,573, generally allow a user to see how the stamp will look on the item before leaving an impression, but it is difficult to realign the stamp in the same position if a more than one impression is required.

Accordingly, a need has long existed for an improved craftwork accessory item.

SUMMARY

In one embodiment, a craftwork accessory may provide a portable and/or easy-to-use tool to help users' accurately and repeatedly apply stamp impressions and the like to items such as cardstock. The accessory may include a base portion, one or more elevated side portions and cover portion. The side portions may define a workspace for arranging the item. The cover portion may be movably attached to the base portion or a side portion, for example, by one or more hinges. In operation, the item and stamp may be aligned in the workspace and the cover portion may be pressed onto the stamp to stick the stamp to the cover portion. The cover may then be opened, the stamp may be inked, and the cover portion may be closed and pressed onto the item to stamp the item. The accessory may include alignment indicia on the base portion, side portions and/or cover portion to facilitate placement of the item and/or stamp. The accessory may also include fastening mechanisms, such as magnetic elements, to facilitate placement of the item and/or stamp.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

The elements illustrated in the Figures interoperate as explained in more detail below. Before setting forth the detailed explanation, however, it is noted that all of the discussion below, regardless of the particular implementation being described, is exemplary in nature, rather than limiting.

Referring to FIG. 1, an exemplary craftwork accessory 100 is shown. The accessory 100 may include a base portion 110, one or more elevated side portions 120 a, 120 b, and 120 c, and cover portion 130. The side portions 120 a-c may define a workspace 112 on the base portion 110 that may be used to place the item to be stamped or otherwise adorned. In some embodiments, such as the embodiment shown in FIG. 1, the accessory 100 may include three elevated side portions 120 a-c. In other embodiments, more or less elevated side portions may be provided. The cover portion 130 may be moveably attached to the base portion 110. Alternatively, or additionally, the cover portion 130 may be attached to one or more side portions 120 a-c and/or the base portion 110. In the illustrated embodiment, the cover portion 130 is attached to the base portion 110 by a hinge assembly 140. Other mechanisms for moveably attaching the cover portion 130 to other components of the accessory 100 may also be used. These may include, for example, brass hinges, piano hinges, non-hinge assemblies, and the like.

In one embodiment, the overall footprint of the accessory 100 is about 8″ by about 10″. In other embodiments, the width of the footprint of the accessory 100 may be between about 5″ and about 15″ and the length of the footprint of the accessory 100 may be between about 6″ and about 16″. These sizes typically allow the accessory 100 to be compatible with most common cardstock and the like while maintaining portability of the accessory 100. Other sizes may also be used. Alternatively, or additionally, the accessory 100 may be sold in various sizes, such as extra small, small, medium, large, and extra-large and/or in various colors. In some embodiments, different colors may be used for different components of the accessory.

The components of assembly 100 may be made of any suitable material. For example, rigid or semi-rigid materials such as acrylic, metal, tempered glass, cardboard and the like may be used. The components may be made of the same material, or different components may be made using different materials or combinations of materials. The assembly 100 as a whole may be made of a unified construction, subsets of components made of a unified construction, or each component may be separately constructed.

An exemplary base portion 110 of an exemplary craftwork accessory 100 is shown in FIG. 2. The base portion 110 may be made of any suitable rigid or semi-rigid material, such as acrylic or the like. The base portion 110 may be translucent or opaque, clear or colored. The base portion 110 may define some or all of the footprint of the accessory item 100. For example, the base portion 110 may have a width of about 8″, a length of about 10″, and a thickness of about 3/32″. Other sizes may also be used. The base portion 110 may include indicia 114 (FIG. 8a ) to facilitate of an item on the workspace 112 of the base portion 110. The indicia 114 may include, for example, grid lines, ruler markings, and the like. The indicia 114 may be printed or laser etched onto either an upper or lower surface of the base portion 110 itself. Alternatively, or additionally, additional components including indicia 114 may be placed under or atop the base portions 110, such as a piece of grid paper, to facilitate alignment of the item on the workspace. Optionally, the bottom of the base portion 110 may be made of a material having a suitable coefficient of friction to impede movement or slippage of the accessory 100 during normal use (also referred to herein as a “non-slip” surface). Alternatively or additionally, such a material may be attached to or applied to the bottom or the top of the base portion 110.

Optionally, the accessory may include a fastening mechanism for securing the item to the work space. In one embodiment, the base portion 110 may include metal or other ferromagnetic material 118 (FIG. 5) for cooperating with a magnet 119 (FIG. 8b ) placed on top of the item to secure the item on the workspace 112. Alternatively, or additionally, the ferromagnetic material 118 may be disposed above or below some or all of the workspace 112. Other mechanism may also be used to fasten the item to the workspace 112. For example, a top surface of the workspace 112 may have a coefficient of friction that impedes movement of an item placed thereon.

FIGS. 3a-b show exemplary side portions 120 a-c of an exemplary craftwork tool. In FIG. 3a , a top view of an exemplary side portions 120 a-c are shown. The side portions 120 a-c may be made up of a single piece or multiple pieces. The side portions 120 a-c may be disposed to the top of the base portion 110. Alternatively, or additionally, one or more of the side pieces may be attached to another part of the base portion 110, such as a side of the base portion 110. In one embodiment, the side portions may be attached to the top of the base portion 110 and have a thickness of at least about one-eighth inch so as to define a workspace 112 that is about one-eight inch deep. Other thicknesses may be used, such as one-quarter inch, one-third inch, one-half inch and the like. In some embodiments, one or more spacers 113 (FIG. 6) may be provided with the accessory to reduce the depth of the workspace 112 relative to the elevated side portions 120 a-c. Spacer 113 may be, for example, a foam pad. The spacer 113 may have a thickness proportional to the depth of the workspace 112, such as a thickness corresponding to one-half or one-quarter the depth of the workspace 112. Any other ratio may also be used.

Each side portion 120 a-c may be the same thickness and/or width, or each side portion 120 a-c may vary in thickness and/or width. For example, each side portion 120 a-c may be about three-quarters inches wide. The width of the side portions 120 a-c may vary with the overall footprint of the accessory 100. In some embodiments, the width of a side portion 120 a-c may be between about five percent and about twelve percent of the length or width of the overall footprint of the accessory 100.

The side portions 120 a-c may span some or all of the length of a side of the accessory 100, and each side piece 120 a-c may span a different length of its corresponding side. In some embodiments, the side portions 120 a-c may span at least one-fifth of the length of the side of the accessory 100. In other embodiments, the side portions 120 a-c may span at least one fourth, one-third, or one-half of the length of a corresponding side of the accessory 100. Other lengths may also be used. The inner part of the side portions 120 a-c may abut the upper surface of base portion 110, or one or more of the side portions 120 a-c may include a recessed portion 124 that provides a gap between the upper surface of the base portion and a surface of side portion 120 a-c. An example of this is shown in FIG. 3b . The recessed portion 124 may allow a user of the accessory 100 additional alignment options, such as when creating a border on the item.

Optionally, the side portions 120 a-c are dimension to allow for the inclusion of indicia 122 for facilitating alignment of the item and/or stamp or other embellishment items. In some embodiments, indicia 122 may be disposed in one-eighth inch increments along one or all of the side portions 120 a-c. Other increments, such as numbers, gridlines and the like, also may be provided and different indicia may be placed on different side portions or within the same side portion. The indicia may be laser etched or printed to the side portion, or may be on a sticker, decal or the like affixed to one or more of the side portions 120 a-c. Combinations of techniques and/or indicia may also be used. In addition, any of the techniques for providing any indicia on any of the components of the accessory 100 may be used to provide indicia on any of the other components.

FIG. 4 shows a cover portion 130 of an exemplary craftwork tool. The cover portion 130 may be dimensioned similarly to the base portion 110, or may be dimensioned differently. In one embodiment, the cover may be about 8″ wide by about 10″ long. Other sizes, such as sizes appropriate for an accessory 100 having an overall footprint in the ranges discussed above, may also be used. The cover may be made of any suitable rigid or semi-rigid material, such as acrylic or the like. Preferably, the cover is translucent so as to allow a user of the accessory 100 to see the workspace even if the cover is closed. In other embodiments, the cover may be opaque.

Preferably, the cover includes indicia 132 for facilitating alignment of the item and/or stamp. For example, indicia 132 may include one-quarter inch gridlines, one-eighth inch, and the like. The indicia 132 may be, for example, printed or etched onto the cover 132. Other methods of placing indicia 132 on the cover 130 may also be used. In some embodiments, the cover portion 130 does not include any indicia 132.

FIG. 5 shows a cross-sectional view of an exemplary craftwork tool. As illustrated, the accessory 100 includes a base portion 110, side portions 120 a-b, and a cover portion 130 attached to the base portion 110 by a hinge assembly 140. In addition, a piece of ferromagnetic material 118 is provided under the base portion 110. The ferromagnetic material 118 may be secured in position by a non-slip surface 116, which may be attached to the base. Alternatively, both the ferromagnetic material 118 and the non-slip surface 116 may be attached to the base portion 110 independently.

FIG. 6 shows a cross sectional view of another exemplary craftwork tool. Similar to the embodiment shown in FIG. 5, the accessory 100 includes a base portion 110, side portions 120 a-b, and a cover portion 130 attached to the base portion 110 by a hinge assembly 140. In the embodiment shown in FIG. 6, a piece of ferromagnetic material 118 is provided in a recessed portion of the base portion 110. Additionally, an element 115 having indicia for alignment is also provided in the recessed portion of the base portion 110 so as to be visible by a user looking down on the workspace 112. Element 115 may be, for example, a piece of grid paper or the like. A removable spacer 113 is also provided in the workspace 112 to reduce the depth of the workspace 112.

FIG. 7 shows a flow chart of an exemplary method of operation of an exemplary craftwork tool and FIGS. 8a-g shows a series of depictions of an exemplary craftwork tool while performing the steps shown in FIG. 7. Initially, a user opens the cover portion 130 of the accessory 100 at step 710 (as shown in FIG. 8a ). The user then aligns the item in the workspace 112 and optionally secures the item in place at step 720 (as shown in FIG. 8b ). In the illustrated embodiment, the item is secured in place by placing a magnet 119 on top of the item. Next, the user aligns the stamp on top of the item in a desired position at step 730 (as shown in FIG. 8c ). In the illustrated embodiment, the user places a “Happy Birthday” stamp on the item. At step 740, the user closes the cover portion 130 and presses down to secure the stamp to the cover portion 130 (as shown in FIG. 8d ). The user then opens the cover portion 130 and inks the stamp at step 750 (as shown in FIG. 8e ). Once the stamp is inked, the user may close the cover portion 130 and press down to impress the image on the item at step 760 (as shown in FIG. 8f ). As a result, the item is left with an impression of the stamped image as shown in FIG. 8 g.

As should be apparent to one in the art, if a clean impression is not made on the first attempt, the user may reapply ink and/or repress the stamp as necessary. Additionally, because both the item and the stamp are secured in their portions, the user may re-ink the stamp with various colors and apply the new impression to the enhance or otherwise alter the image on the item, or create multiple copies of the same item be aligning a new item in the same position and restamping. Additionally, the top of the cover may be used in a similar manner to stamp items that are not placed in workspace 112, such as oversized items. Referring to the embodiment shown in FIGS. 8a-g , a user can (1) place an item to the right of the accessory 100, (2) align a stamp on the item, (3) open the cover 130 and secure the stamp to the cover 130, (4) close the cover 130 and ink the stamp and (5) open the cover 130 to stamp the item. Other methods of operation may also be apparent to one of ordinary skill. Thus, the accessories 100 described herein provide solutions that offer a portable and easy-to-use tool for creating high-quality stamp impressions for a wide variety of uses.

While various embodiments of the invention have been described, it will be apparent to those of ordinary skill in the art that many more embodiments and implementations are possible within the scope of the invention. Accordingly, the invention is not to be restricted except in light of the attached claims and their equivalents.
